    Pig

    ★★★★

    Every time someone antagonizes Nicolas Cage's character in the film, you expect his signature outbreak, engulfing everything in its path in irredeemable fury. Instead, what you get, is a sombre, broken, yet strong reply. A reply in kind. Every time.

The film might be named after Mozart, but the story is truly about Salieri, his rampant pursuit of greatness, and his constant failure to achieve it. For every Mozart in the world, we have hundred of Salieris who are great in their skill but don't have that one thing that might turn them into…
